This rare shaped wine decanter is 7 ” in diameter x 12 “ tall. The piece, designed by Christopher Dresser features the finest in aesthetic design. Quite unusual and rare to find in red imari flow blue colors. Design by the legendary Christopher Dresser during his work at the English potteries.
Wildly isometrical with Japanese whimsy designs, the height of the Aesthetic Movement in form and design. Cobalt painting and a fabulous Butterfly. Appears to have never been used. No chips, cracks or repairs. Normal age crazing.
